The professor of epidemiology pointed out that the schools that will be closed due to the large spread of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus
THE Athena Linou was adamant about how he could open schools, pointing out that this could only be done if teachers and students do a molecular test for the coronavirus.
Speaking to Kontra, the professor of epidemiology pointed out that the “explosion” of Omicron’s cases is so great that in the process, that is, if the examination with a self test is selected, schools will inevitably close as there will be a large dispersion between teachers and students.
This fact, he stressed, will lead to even greater dissemination in the event that the merger of departments is chosen due to the absence of teachers in order not to close schools.
Athena Linou cited the USA as an example, where schools are closed due to the fact that many teachers have fallen ill. Referring to the dispersal of Omicron, she pointed out that the cases are and will be very many with the positivity yesterday on Monday being at 25%.
He once again asked the citizens to observe the individual protection measures masks everywhere even in the house while he pointed out that the coronavirus is transmitted two days before the onset of symptoms.
